fixed his eyes on the Prince. ‘Prince, 

I meant what I said; I am a doctor.’ 

‘I have five already, and if you are 
no more use than they are, beware of 
the scourge, you rogue!’ 

‘The best men don’t always escape 
scourging,’ replied the man; ‘and there 
are more wounds than those inflicted 
by the knout. 

Do you see? 

‘Otrepieff,’ said Shuiski, ‘you are a 
miracle. You are right; we are all 
babies compared with you. We need¬

impostor has fallen, I will not forget 

‘I know what you are thinking of,’ 
answered Otrepieff, with a peculiar 
smile; ‘you mean to be Tsar yourself.

a magnificent tiara of pearls.

It is without a parallel as a gen¬

of the invalid than any other ever 
produced. It is made from a spec¬

foremost chemists of the age. As 
a jieart and Nerve Tonic it is with¬ 
out an equal.

increases the circulation, aud material¬

What Can Be Done to Improve 

We have seen impassable mudholes 
In public roads within 100 feet of stone 
and gravel enough to fill them. 'Such 
conditions exist everywhere, but there 
has been no systematic attempt to im¬ 
prove the public highways. In very 
many cases people travel through the 
mud, year after year, within a few 
miles of enough material to make 
.©very principal road in the country a 
hard road. We have been studying- 
road laws, and watching the good 
roads conventions for several years, 
and we note these facts: The more 
laws the less good roads; and that the 
work of the conventions ends in talk. 

! Much can be done to improve the 
roads in level countries by keeping the 
road bed well .rounded up, so tijat the 
water may run off easily, but ai over-

Dragged Roads. 

A man 'testifies as follows: “I 
'could send a man over the road to-day, 
muddy as it is, and he would know 
Within three feet of the place where I 
began to drag." Another relates the 
following: “The driver hitched one 
horse to a buggy, and at a time when 
t)he roads should have been almost im¬ 
passable, and the other roads in tha 
bottom actually terrible, we drove in 
a trot the entire distance without a 
break." The writer was making a 
visit' to a farm in the country. An¬ 
other writer, a liveryman, says: “The 
dragged parts of this road are so 
much the best that they seem to be 
in another country, or made out of dif¬ 
ferent stuff." 

Such testimony ought to .induce 
farmers everywhere to try this inex¬ 
pensive method of road improvement, 
at least in front of their own prem¬ 
ises, unless they are already blessed 
with roads that are satisfactory.

Bordeaux Cordial 


Stomach Remedy, 

Acting as a Tonic, Stimulant 
and Blood Producer. 

It is without a parallel as a gen¬ 
eral and special tonic in all cases of 
debility. It’meets more conditions 
of the invalid than any other ever 
produced. It is made from a spec¬ 
ially prepared article by one of the 
foremost chemists of the age. As 
ajieart and Nerve Tonic it is with¬ 
out an equal, 


I hereby certify that I have person¬ 
ally used the French Bordeaux Cordial 
for whioh Mr. 0. D. Leonard of Gardi¬ 
ner is agent. 1 As 1 a stomach remedy, to' 
stimulate an appetite and pfOhiote di¬ 
gestion it must rank as one of the most 
efficient remedies yet known. It has a 
tonic effect upon the genoral system, 
increases the circulation, aud material¬ 
ly 1 builds np the whole body by its re¬ 
constructive power to one who feels de¬ 
bilitated, when taken according to 
directions, it seems to haVe immediate 
effect and creates a feeling of exhileva- 
tion that is moi'e permanent than from 
any remedy I have ever used.

Farmers and Good Roads. 

Broken automobiles and buggies, 
unfinished tour.s and all kinds of trou¬ 
bles, will, from all appearances, bring 
about a great change in the condition 
of country roads and in the mainten¬ 
ance of public highways. 

The change for the better will be of 
much importance to the farmer. The 
country roads are maintained and re¬ 
paired by .the farmers, who lower, or 
wipe out their taxes. This custom has 
been followed for years. Those inter¬ 
ested in good roads have come to a 
realization that the only way to secure 
betterment of roads is to.compel the 
farmer to pay his taxes instead of 
working them out on the roads. 




Swiss Believes in the Abstinence of 
Salt and Water, 

A curious-looking man of strange. 
' habits and with a mission that is 
even stranger, has just arrived in 
j London from Ascona, on Lake Mag- 
giore, Switzerland. He has taken up 
jhis residence in the vicinity of Col-

Herr Joseph Salomonson, the gen¬

North London highways wearing a 
cassock of brown corduroy encircled 
at the waist by a girdle. His long 
brown,^wisp' hair, unincumbered by 
hat, hides his collarless neck, and a 
ragged-edged beard droops over the 
open part of his gown. His feet are 
incased in sandals, and at times he

Improving tjje Dairy Herd. 

From the Illinois Experiment sta¬ 
tion we are in receipt of circular No. 
76 on the “Improvement of Dairy 
Herds," by Herbert A. Hooper, assis¬ 
tant in dairy husbandry. A summary 
of this bulletin follows: 

1. Test every cow; guessing at her 
production Is unsafe. 

2. Use the Scales continually and 
the Babcock test at regular intervals; 
no other method combines simplicity 
and accuracy, 

3. Some cow's secrete more milk 
and better milk from a giyen amount 
of food than do others. 

4. Procure a well-bred sire of ap¬ 
proved type, . and rear the heifer 
calves from tlhe best cowe. 

5. Since the producer cannot fix 
•the price of his dairy products he 
must study economy of produ'etio'n, 

indi te thus forced to look into the 
sslbillties -of his individual .cows. 

Mushroom* Pay. . 
Mushroom growing. appears to be 
the most paying of all branches of 
agriculture. A mushroom cultivator

If such-huge profits can be secured 
there would seem a good opening for

State Performance for the Dowagei 
Empress of China. 

A state circus performance was 
lately given before the Dowager Em¬ 
press of China, and a member of the 
troupe, Mr. J. P. Schooner, describes 
the curious event in the Japan Times. 
Ohatre’s circus was conducted to the 
summer palace with much ceremony, 
Imperial 'guards lining, the route, and 
one of the royal houses was placed at 
its disposal. A huge tent was erected 
near the large lake, and two little yel¬ 
low-painted booths were built for her 
majesty and the suite. As soon as all 
the preparations were completed, the 
royal party came from the palace in 
the imperial steam launch. The em¬ 
press was escorted by several large^ 
barges, splenidljt'decorated, with im¬ 
perial g°iiavds, and a small group of 
handsomely adorned Chinese ladies, 
highly painted, with headgear of the 
most elaborate designs, adorned with 
pink, yellow, and pale-blue flowers, 
and wearing pearls and beads of dif¬ 
ferent hues. The imperial party ar¬ 
rived at 4 p. m., the empress being 
carried to her booth in a sedan chair 
from the landing. Arrived at the 
booth, her majesty comfortably seated 
herself on a couc-h placed in the cen¬ 
tre of the booth. The emperor took 
his station, standing just outside the 
doorway to the left, and the ladies in 
waiting Stationing themselves on eith¬ 
er side of the empress. The high offi¬ 
cials, about twenty ,ln number, stood 
some to the right and some to the left, 
and about 400 soldiers filled in the 
space where the gallery usually is. 

The empress, after receiving a light¬ 
ed cigarette from one of the ladies in 
waiting, requested that the perform¬ 
ance be commenced. Mr. Chatre, ac¬ 
companied by the circus ' staff, ad¬ 
vanced into the arena and, after sa¬ 
luting her majesty in royal Indian 
fashion, according to the native cus¬ 
tom when visiting a royal head, he 
presented her majesty with a dia¬ 
mond ring set with seven large dia¬ 
monds, a cashmere shawl highly em¬ 
broidered with threads of gold in ela¬ 
borate Indian designs, and he also 
presented the ‘.baby ~ elephant, five 
j-ears old. -The gifts were all gracious¬ 
ly accepted by the empress. Her ma¬ 
jesty was very much interested in the 
balancing -acts, as well as the india 
rubber babies, constantly directing her 
binoculars, which were inlaid in solid 
gold, at the performers, 
i After the conclusion of the perform¬ 
ance her majesty ordered in the tiger 
cage, She showed great interest while 
examining this animal. After the re¬ 
moval of this cage the lion cage was 
brought in, but this did not interest 
her majesty so much as the tiger. On 
her way back to the Imperial, launch 
she Reckoned to one of the dwarf 
clowns and minutely examined him, 
showing much curiosity, and asking 
his age, nationality, and whether he 
liked Pekin.

is reminiscent of figures in Scriptural 

Herr Saiomonson’s object is to try 
to induce London’s 6,000,000 inhabi¬ 
tants to retrain from eating salt and 
drinking all manner of liquids, 
even water. He himself, so he as¬ 
serts, has not taken any kind of 
liquid since Sept. 1. 1901, and he has 
eschewed salt for a longer period. 

At Ascona he has established a col¬ 
ony of devoted disciples, male and 
female, who do likewise. Moreover, 
they work in a state of primitive ab¬ 
sence of attire, separated by wooden 
partitions; and when the weather per¬ 
mits, they even sleep in this state on 
the bare ground. Herr Salomonson 
appreciates the difficulty of this part 
of his programme being carried out 
in London. “But," he explained the 
other day, “there are plenty of suita¬ 
ble sites within an hour’s railway 
journey from the city.” 

He saw no reason, however, why 
London should not at once abandon 
the eating of salt and the drinking of 
liquids. “Salt,” he averred, “is the 
beginning of all evil. It is ruinous to 
the body, damaging to the soul and 
destructive of the intellect. Water or 
any other form of liquid is a mere 
burdeu to the stomach and has no 
value at all.” 

In short, Herr Salomonson, who is 
a man of considerable intelligence, 
believes that if people followed his ex¬ 
ample there woud be no sickness. 
During the twenty-six months - that 
no drop has passed his lips he has 
lost in weight 02 pounds, but feels 
many years younger and much 

“There is not a sound man in the 
world,” he declared, “and yet people 
who eat salt and drink water live to 
be as old as 90 or even 100. When we 
live a nat-ural life I see no reason why 
we should not attain to 200 or 250 
years. I believe in the ages men¬ 
tioned in the Bible, and I believe we 
should live as long in these days if 
we lived on the lines intended for hu¬ 
manity. That is my mission here.”—

Proper Attention Will Save Much 
Hard Work on,Roads, 

Earth is composed of small, irreg¬ 
ular fragments which touch each other 
< at points, leaving voids between. In 
| the building or maintaining of earth 
j roads it is very desirable that these. 
' irregular particles be packed into as 
! small a space as possible, in order that' 
j surplus water may not pass in and 
i destroy the stability of the road. To 
| this end rollingds very beneficial. The 
i work of maintaining dirt roads' will 
; be much increased by lack of care in 
properly rolling the surface. 

After the material has been placed 
on the surface, it should not be left 
for traffic to consolidate or for rain 
to wash off into the ditches, but should 
be carefully surfaced and then rolled. 
If loose earth is left in the middle of 
a road, the narrow tire wheels will cut 
it and knead it into uneven ridges and 
ruts, which hold water, and this ulti¬ 
mately results, if in the winter season, 
in a sticky, muddy surface, and in dry 
weather in covering the surface with 
dust. If, however, the surface be 
crowned with a road machine and 
properly rolled with a heavy roller,- 
it can usually he made sufficiently firm 
and smooth to sustain the traffic with¬

penetrating action of the water. The 
rolling not only consolidates the small 
particles of earth and leaves less space 
for water, but puts the road in proper 
shape for travel immediately. 

Effects of Bad Highways. 

An illustration of the cost of bad 
roads to the agricultural portion of 
the country may be had in an example 
recently witnessed in Texas. A crop 
of onions raised by irrigation at Care- 
so Springs was being hauled forty 
miles to the nearest station on the 
International and Great Northern Rail¬ 
road, where it was delivered at 1% 
cents per pound. As the yield was 
25,000 pounds to the acre, this crop 
w r as worth $375 at the station, hut, to 
place it there the charge was 50 cAits 
per 100 pounds, or $10 per ton, or per 
acre’s yield $125, causing a'net loss 
to the farmer of 33 per cent. 

The Macadam Road. 

The macadam road- consists of a 
deep foundation of large stones, laid 
as smoothly together as possible, the 
foundation stones being of a nearly 
uniform size. A layer of smaller stones 
is placed over the foundation and roll¬ 
ed down, binding the twb together. 
Then layers of crushed stone, each 
layer being of finer quality than its 
predecessor, are rolled into and over 
the foundations. Th'e final layer is 
of very fine crushed stone. The whole 
settles itself into a compact mass, al¬ 
most as smooth as a flagstone, from- 
which water runs off as soon as it 
falls. -v 

The Location of Roads. 

•The aim. in-.making a road is to es¬ 
tablish the easiest, shortest and _most 
economical line of travel. It is there¬ 
fore desirable that .roads ..should be 
firm, smooth, comparatively level, and 
fit for use at_all seasons of the year; 
■that they should be properly located 
so -tlflit their-grades shall be suoh that 
loaded vehicles may ‘ be drawn over 
them without great loss of energy; 
that they should be properly construct¬ 
ed, the roadbed graded shaped and 
rolled; and that they should b'e sur-. 
faced with the best available mate¬ 
rial .suited to 'thek- needs. 

The Profit of Good Roads.’ 

Now that the country is measurably 
well supplied with, railroads which 
haul the farmer’s products to market 
at an average rajte of a half a cent a 
ton per mile, It begins to be of prime 
importance that the * average, cost of 
hauling from the farm to the railway 
station should be reduced. The De¬ 
partment of ’ Agriculture claims that 
this cost could be reduced two thirds 
by the simple substitution Of good 
macadamized roads for the ordinary 
dlrt^ highways now in use. 

Value of Proper Care. 

The large- majority of roads -for 
some time to come will require only 
earth lor their .ponsEruction, and .for 
this reason it is essential to the pros¬ 
perity of each community that the 
earth road be properly 1 cared for. 

Use of the Roller, 

. A land-rollet Js a good tool for cer¬ 
tain uses -at’ certain times. But never 
use it when the soil is wet. The 
roller, like the weeder, Is a “dry- 
weather" tool, 

Cost of a Good Road. 

The oost of road building varies in 
the different places according to the 
topography of the country and the 
^proximity of the stone used. 

New York's Road Fund, 

The largest appropriation for good 
roads was that made at the last ses¬ 
sion of the New York Legislature, If 
was a million and a half, 

Some workmen upon fixing their lad¬ 
ders high on -the south wall of the 
council chamber at Ablngton, England, 
found a swarm of bees. 


Gratifies Versatile Taste by Using Odd 

President Roosevelt is the kind of 
man who would make himself at 
home anywheie, whether in the back- 
woflos of the West, in the stately 
home the United States provides its 
Presidents, or anywhere in the wide 
range that lies between these ex¬ 
tremes. Healthy in mind and body, 
he Js gifted with the cheery nature 
whose price is above rubies. 

Tfcb President is an omnivorous 
reader. At one turn of conversation 
, he is reminded of a passage in "Hom¬ 
er,” the next he is expatiating on the 
I history of “Tittlebat Titmouse.” A-s- 
for Dickens, he knows him so inti¬ 
mately that he would have been a dan¬ 
gerous competitor in the contest Ini¬ 
tiated by Calverley in his famous ex¬ 
amination paper on “Pickwick.” If 
the President had failed. Senator Ca¬ 
bot Lodge would certainly .have won 
the prize. Any who talk of the decad¬ 
ence of Dickens should come to Wash¬ 
ington and mix with the cultured men- 
of business who direct the destinies of 
the United States. They would speed¬ 
ily discover their error. 

How does the President, a man up¬ 
on whose personal labor the sun nev¬ 
er sets, find time for this miscellane¬ 
ous reading? Well, all over the world 
It is the exceptionally "busy man who 
has spare moments for desirable ends. 
President' Roosevelt shares a secret 
possessed .by Mr. Gladstone whom in 
his animated and varied conversation, 
with its wide range and intimate ac¬ 
quaintance with any topic started, he 
strongly resembles. 

“All my life,” Mr. G. once said to 
me, “I have taken care of my ten min¬ 
utes, certain that the hours -and the 
days would take care of themselves.” 

"I read when I -can,” the President 
says, “always a bit before I go to 
bed. Sometimes, at periods of great 
pressure, I awake about 3 in the morn¬ 
ing; if I lay there thinking of things 
I should he worried to death, unfit for 
my work in the coming day. So I 
switch on the light, take up my book, 
read a chapter or two, fall asleep, and 
wake up bright and early.”—“Toby, 
M. P.,” in Punch. 

A Well Once Used as a Safe, 

Edwin Curd, of Fulton, tells an In¬ 
teresting story of the way in which 
the proprietors of the old Western 
Bank, the first bank in Callaway 
County, took care that bushwhackers 
should not get away with their gold 
deposits in the Civil War. In an. old 
tobacco warehouse in Fulton stands a 
big iron safe. It was bought by the 
Western-Bank and shipped by water 
from St. Louis -in 1856. It weighs 
three tons and a half and cost $1,300. 

It played a leading part in Callaway 
County financial matters during the 
Civil War, and at one time, in 1862, 
contained $50,000 in gold. Conditions 
were very unsettled, and hands of pre¬ 
datory soldiers and bushwhackers 
were prowling over the- country in 
every direction committing many out¬ 
rages as well as fighting with one an¬ 
other. The officers of the bank, of 
which Mr. Curd was president, got 
nervous for fear one of these bands 
should -make a raid on the town-, crack 
the. sake and take all the gold. The 
directors held several consultations, 
and it was at last agreed that Mr. 
Curd, Colonel W. T.. Snell and Ed. 
Parker should make a secret disposi¬ 
tion of the treasure. One man sug¬ 
gested that it be burled in a haystack, 
but this scheme was rejected. 

"I vent ured th e' - idea,” says' Mr.-’ 
Curd, “that"we TIrop. it. to the bottom 
of a well back of John Bartley's store 
—it stood where the Adams block is 
'now, and the well was on the west end 
"of the lot—and my suggestion was 
adopted. I wanted to throw the gold 
into the well loose, but the other two 
thought it best to put it in sacks, for 
fear it would get so scattered 'that we 
would not find it all. I -fold thenrthat 
I bad separated the' gold in its raw 
state from the dirt in California and 
felt sure that I could 'find $20 gold 
pieces in what came out of a well here 
at home. But they had their way, and

.parts',find, each part wrapped In a 
sack and tied securely and put into

two years, and,'when the terrors of 
the war had about subsided and it 
was thought safe to raise the,treasure

hooks to the sacks'and hoisting it to

To Avoid Freckling and Tanning. 

Neck and arms are often discolored 
and rendered unsightly in evening 
dress because of -exposure in out-of- 
door sports. Long sleeves to a bath¬ 
ing suit are apt to be clumsy, but one 
will find a good protection for .the 
hands and arms in the long silk mitts 
th-at meet the sleeve. It coarsens the 
texture of the skin to expose it too 
much to the weather. While out-of- 
door life improves the general health, 
it also improves the skin, but one 
should avoid freckling, burning and 
tanning* the skin toq^ frequently. The 
exposed skin can be'made much less 
•sensitive to the action of the sun’s 
rays by first treating it to a good 
coating of cold cream, thoroughly 
rubbed in, and then applying powder.- 
Avoid washing for some hours after 
exposure to sunshine or if necessary 
use water as hot as can be endured.

World’s Fair News-Notes. 

Eleven millions of people have 
seea the World’s Fair. 

A large tapestry made in 1650 is 
exhibited in the Belgium section 
of the Art Palace at the World’s 
Fair. Although over 350 years old 
it is so well preserved that it re¬ 
tains all of the 2,000 colors and 
shades which are worked into its 
texture. \ 

An inlaid table made from 1,000 
hardwoods is exhibited in Nicara¬ 
gua’s pavilion at the World’s Fair. 
The table was made by hand and 
is a striking exemplification of the 
forest wealth of^ the country. , 
There is also on exhibition, a table ; 
top composed of over 3,500 pieces of 1 
steel tubing of different shapes and ! 
sizes, in the Palace of Transporta-* 

“Pearl culture,” or the artificial ( 
production of pearls is illustrated j 
in the Japanese section of the Pal- , 
ace of Forestry, Fish and Game at 
the World’s Fair. This industry 1 
has recently been undertaken in j 
Japan and has quickly assumed f 
large proportions. Culture pearls r 
are as strong and durable and in c 
many cases as beautiful as pearls r 
which are'secured in the "usual ^ 
manner. ■ t

Id a Living: Grave. 

A curious freak of nature is ex¬ 
hibited in the Idaho department 
of the Palace of Mines and Metal¬ 
lurgy, at the World’s Fair. It is a 
ram’s skull and horns, imbedded 
deeply in the trunk of a tree. One 
horn projects into the air, but of 
the skull and the other horn only 
the upper surface is visible, all the 
rest b^ing inclosed within the solid 
wood. The section of trunk dis¬ 
played has been split down the 
center, and when the exposed sur¬ 
face, at the rear, representing the 
very heart of the tree, is examined 
the tip of the buried horn and a 
corner of tho skull are seen to pro¬ 
trude through it. 

The tree of which this is a por¬ 
tion was a white pine, growing on 
the middle fork of the Salmon 
river, about forty miles in a direct 
line from Summit City, Idaho. 
The horns, which are easily identi¬ 
fiable as belonging to the male of 
the mountain sheep, were found at 
a point nine feet from the ground. 
Local experts, by counting the 
rings on the horns and the circles 
of yearly growth in the log, have 
come to the conclusion that the 
sheep had lived for more than a 
century when it descended or as¬ 
cended into its living grave, and 
that the tree itself was about 
twenty or twenty-five vears old at 
the time, which must have been at- 
least eighty or ninety years ago. 

Many conflicting theories have 
been advanced to account for this 
curious find. Some maintain that 
the animal must have been carried 
into the tree in a snowslide from a 
higher part of the mountain. 
0 : hers advance the hypothesis that 
a freshet was responsible for the 
freak, the tree having been found 
near the shores of a creek. The 
ram must have fallen or leaped 
against the tree so violently that 
one of its horns became too deeply 
imbedded for it to extricate it, es¬ 
pecially as it was^too far from the 
ground to obtain a foothold; and 
it then remained suspjnded in the 
air alive until it died of starvation 
or succumbed to the attacks of 
birds of prey. 

The place where the specimen 
was found was so far remote that 
it was necessary to pack it on 
horseback for fifty miles along the 
devious mountain trails in order to 
get it to a wagon road. I

A Doer Done. 

One of the mo 9 t sensational, dar¬ 
ing and dastardly outrages that 
ever occurred in Maine, was per¬ 
petrated last week in Franklin 
county, the victim being William 
G. Harlow, a well-known and re¬ 
spected citizen of Dtxfield. Upon 
a recent visit to Portland Mr. Har¬ 
low met a stranger who gave the 
name of Leroy A. French and 
claimed to be an officer of the 
United States Secret Service, as¬ 
signed the State of Maine to appre¬ 
hend counterfeiters. 

Later,'■French^ came to Dixfield, 
where he met Mr. Harlow and 
they went to the Lakes, stopping 
nearly a week at different hotels, 
most of the time at the Rangeley 
Lake House, 

On Monday afternoon of last 
week, Harlow was induced to go 
several miles into the woods where 
he was robbed, after being wound¬ 
ed by a revolver in the hands of 
French, of all his money, checks, 
watch, chain and diamond ring, 
aud compelled to make out acheck 
to his (French’s) order for $350, 
and sign some other paper, Mr. 
Harlow does not know just what. 

Continuing in his high-handed 
course, French took Harlow to 
Farmington and lodged him in 
jail, claiming he was a counterfeit¬ 
er whom he had wounded while 
resisting arrest. He next tried to 
cash the check for $350 which he 
compelled Harlow to make out to 
his order, and two other checks 
properly endorsed, which he took 
from Harlow’s person. The bank 
cashier refused to cash the 
checks till French was identified. 
Suddenly an officer appeared with 
a warrant for French’s arrest on 
the charge of larceny of a team 
and French was taken to the 
county jail. 

French was held on three counts, 
robbery of a watch, chain diamond 
ring, cash and checks; assault 
with intent to kill; and larceny of 
a horse, wagon, etc-, and placed 
under bonds. On one case in the 
sum of $5,000, on another $500, and 
others are held over him. 

The officers are much pleased at 
at the capture of French and be¬ 
lieve he will prove to be a notori¬ 
ous crook.

Brown vs. White Eggs. 

It is a curious fallacy that the brown 
colored egg Is necessarily superior to 
the ordinary white egg,' a belief which 
has led to the practice of artificially 
coloring the latter in imitation of the 
former. It is doubtful whether the- 
color of the shell bears any relation¬ 
ship to the nourishing quality of the 
egg. As those who rear poultry know, 
it is merely an indication of the strain 
of the laying bird. Still, a preference 
is very commonly shown for the brown 
or coffee colored egg! the color is at¬ 
tractive, and ,led -'by the eye, the 
choice is very generally made in favor 
of what is regarded as the richer and 
superior article.—Lancet.

One of the peculiar incidents of 
the recent wreck- at the Maine 
Siate Fair grounds was the finding 
in the wreckage by Postmaster. 
Smart of Lewiston of a registered 
letter addressed “Postmaster,

Io was torn straight across the

The postmaster counted them 
and found that there were the 
halves of $268. On Tuesday morn¬ 
ing, Joseph Plante, in the employ 
of Le Messager of Lewiston came 
to the Lewiston postoffice and 
handed to Postmaster Smart, the 
other half of the registered letter, 
money and enclosures all intact. ' 
It was found at quite a distance 
from the place Where the other 
half was fouiid. • 

The two halves flt together per¬

Every farmer should raise a few

very profitable. 

. If your little chicks are continually

they are lousy.

I wish to say to the public that 
I have opened a Sale Stable in May- 
ville, and will keep a large stock of 
Horses, weighing from 1000 to 
1600 pounds each, constantly on 
hand. If you need a good work 
horse, or a driver, give me a call and 
I will please you.

Bethel,’ Maine.
